    Upon hearing the sad news of my aunt’s passing, I started reliving some of my memories of her. As a child, times shared together in Nebraska at grandma’s house., a warm and peaceful chapter of my life. Her cool blue Camaro.. As an adult, sending t-shirts to each other. I sent California Highway Patrol shirts and she sent me college shirts. Touring Washington D.C. with her when we gathered for my cousin’s wedding. Her passion for learning and exploring was contagious. We shared in our love of animals. I always loved her smile, often with a twinkle in her eye, and her laugh. Distance often separated us and I wish there had been more shared times.

    May the happy memories comfort all of you who remember Marilyn. I also remember my cousin as always soft-spoken, but quick to smile with a twinkle in her eye. When you are missing her, may the twinkling stars remind you of her smile and know she is happy. God bless Marilyn and you with his love.
